ACI-NA Files Comments on EPA’s Proposed Deicing ELG Rule

On February 26, 2010, ACI-NA submitted comments to EPA in response to the Agency’s proposed Effluent Limitation Guidelines and Standards for the Airport Deicing Point Source Category. ACI-NA’s comments emphasized that, as proposed, the rule was unworkable for the airport industry, and that any revised rule needed to be more flexible and adequately account for aviation’s operational and safety needs while providing cost-effective environmental benefits.

ACI-NA will continue to engage with EPA as the rulemaking process moves forward.

The proposed rule and supporting documentation are available on EPA’s website at: http://www.epa.gov/guide/airport/.
